About signature files

The Signature files panel in BIG-IQ Web Application Security lists the signature files for each discovered BIG-IP device, and enables you to view the properties for these files.

Currently, Administrators can manage signature files for one BIG-IP device from the BIG-IP Configuration Utility. Through BIG-IQ Web Application Security, however, signature files and signature file updates for multiple devices can be centrally managed from the BIG-IQ platform.

Managing signatures from the BIG-IQ platform enables the administrator to spend less time on signature updates.

Note: This feature is available to users with the Administrator role or the Security_Manager role.
